you're right about this.
The reason for it is that the last visible frame is not actually  
deleted when you press Command-W, but hidden, because GNU Emacs is  
unable to delete the last remaining frame (at least not without  

I can add a workaround to the workaround by actually deleting the  
hidden frame after the user has opened another one.
